“Tiangge” is a Tagalog word for a flea market where products and items can be bought at a cheaper price. In our hometown (Lopez, Quezon), it is scheduled every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday mornings.

As I promised myself that after a short visit to our hometown in 2014 I will try to come back to take more photos of our market (I used to sell tomatoes, spices and other items when I was a teen, helping my eldest sister).
Nine months after, I was back again in the Philippines for my annual vacation. I spent 3 days in my father’s house and arranged the photo walk with a fellow photographer from our group – Lopez Photography Club. We did it on a Friday to catch the flea market where more vendors and more people will be around.
“Most of the time, I do not aim at how the subject will be projected but on how its story will be narrated.”
Back in 2016 together with some fellow members of Lopez Photography Club, we went to Calauag, Quezon for a sunrise shoot.
When the sun was up we took photos of our interest and I have noticed this couple, I supposed. I took series of photos of them while they proceed to go fishing.

My first try of street photography back in August, 2013.
How many times I have thought of doing this, but could not find the guts to do it specially when you are in the place where there are prohibitions and restrictions. Part of me is telling to do it and the other part is shutting me off.
But finally, I gave it a try.
